Margi Flint’s Garden Concerts Return to Marblehead

MARBLEHEAD – Margi Flint’s backyard garden concerts are returning, taking place Sundays from 2 to 4 p.m. at 10 Central St. beginning July 7.

Flint said reservations for the concerts are welcome. She offers shaded seating and chairs, some with tables. Visitors can bring “drinks and snacks,” she said.

The cost of the event is a donation to the musicians playing and is $20 to $35 per person, depending on what participants can afford. Children can attend for $10 or free.

To leave a donation, send a check with the chosen details to:

Alternatively, people can leave a note in Flint’s mailbox with the dates they are attending and the number of people in their group, along with a check or cash.

Attendees may also bring cash on the day of the concert. In the event of rain, Flint will decide to postpone the concert at 12:00 noon on the day of the show. Parking is available on the straight side of the street or in the Tucker Architecture parking lot next to their home.
